Music Mantra Monday: Metallica - Nothing Else Matters

I know what some of you are thinking. This song is waaaay out of my usual musical tastes. Yes, and no. I am a strong supporter of all kinds of music, as long as the message of the song isn't hurtful, racist or targeting others personally.

Metallica has been around for a long time. When I told my second eldest that I used to listen to them when I was younger, her jaw almost hit the floor. I have always been a Beatles fan but I was really into punk, grunge and some metal that fell somewhere in between.

There are some harder songs from Metallica that I really enjoy, but this one reminds me of my second eldest. No two people get the exact same message from a song, however, my girl and I seem to feel the same vibe from this song...that despite all the crappy things going on around us, the crappy things people do and say, in the end, it's our happiness and what instills that happiness that matters.

We've had such a trying past few months. It's been a massive roller coaster ride consisting of a few highs, with plummeting lows. But we've survived, and always will. My children will always be that one constant in my life and from where I draw strength.

Nothing else matters.
